Course Aims

To provide delegates with the training, skills and knowledge in emergency first aid and comply with the requirements of the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981. Employees working within "low risk" workplaces that require an "appointed person" to take charge in the event of illness or injury.
The Emergency First Aid at Work course is run over one day and includes both theory and practical sessions; the course is conducted in a relaxed environment with the focus on building knowledge and confidence.

Suitable For

Any person nominated by their employer as an Appointed Person in the workplace.

Course length

1 day

Pre-requisites

Temporary physical impairment - In situations where employers inform
training providers that an employee attending an FAW / EFAW course has a
temporary physical impairment, it may be sensible to advise them to defer
training until the individual is fit. If this is not possible and the student
has a temporary physical impairment, affecting for example mobility, a training
provider can temporarily accommodate this during training. For example, a knee
injury may prevent CPR training as the person is unable to kneel on the floor,
so the training could be delivered at waist height. If you have any queries do contact us for advice.

Certification

All delegates will be awarded a nationally recognised, accredited Certificate of Attendance, valid for three years. NVQ Level 2 equivalency.

Costs

£89.00 + VAT per person, or contact us for a group booking quotation.
